#Real-Life #Photogrammetry United States Exclusive Drag and Drop
The Thaddeus Kosciusko Bridge, known locally as the Twin Bridges, was a pathetic flat piece of concrete in the base sim. I was able to extract the model of the bridge from Google Maps and import it into the simulator.

Learn more about the bridge here.

Included is several fixes for the water around the bridge as well.

Known issues:
- There's a texture that 'shimmers' on the bridge surface
- The color of the roads doesn't match up
- Cars may appear to drive on the air
